CB radio and antenna installation

Hi all,

I'm going to have a CB radio and antenna installed in my 2002 Newmar DSDP and have a few questions.

1. Where is the fuse box where I would connect the radio?

2. What is the best way to wire the antenna into the coach?

3. Is there anything else I should know?

Thank you!

Liz

In my 2001 Mountain Aire there was a "power control panel" (fuse box) under a cover in front of the steering wheel on top of the dash. Lid will pop up with the help a small screwdriver etc.
Ther may be an unused spot on the board. Should be no fuse in unused ones but some will have a fuse in them.
If you can access that location then running power should be no problem if you or the installer are familiar wit 12 volt wiring.

You may have fuses under a panel top of dash board.
